What a difference 3 minutes make, huh? :))
Taken at the same spot as this image, just 180 sec earlier.
OK, so the sun doesn’t come up *that* fast, even in Africa!

This was the effect I really wanted to achieve, and most of it *is* in-camera.
Struben’s Dam is a special place on a winter morning.
The mist and the light and the lush vegetation combine to make it seem that
you are really in another place, a different time….
Nou-ja, that might just be my active imagination, lol!

Step into the faerie-tale…:))
